Mission Viejo, California, United States, Oct. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Leonhardt Ventures, LLC  is pleased to announce the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. Patent No. 11,471,686 covering bioelectric stimulation control of increasing Klotho, a protein must known for muscle regeneration and other powerful anti-aging properties. More than 3,000 papers have been published describing a clear connection between low Klotho levels and nearly all age-related ailments and major diseases, including heart and cardiovascular disease, muscle atrophy, kidney failure, cancer, brain disorders, high blood pressure and diabetes.

“This Klotho patent adds significant support to our goal mission to help people live longer and healthier lives. Adequate Klotho levels may be a critical factor in healthy aging and disease prevention. In landmark studies, mice deficient in Klotho exhibited accelerated aging and died 30% sooner than mice with normal Klotho levels. Mice receiving supplemental Klotho lived 30% longer with fewer aging-related ailments. In recent clinical studies, we have demonstrated up to a 150% increase in circulating Klotho with only two 45-minute bioelectric stimulation sessions a week for four weeks. We are conducting additional well controlled clinical studies to gather data to further demonstrate the safety and efficacy of this technology,” stated Howard J. Leonhardt, Executive Chairman & CEO of Leonhardt Ventures, LLC.

This Klotho IP and technology has been licensed for use with numerous organ specific therapeutic candidate innovations, including the following:

  1. Heart and Cardiovascular applications include heart, heart valve, and aorta regeneration, and high blood pressure management.
  2. Brain and Neurological applications include treatments for depression, memory loss, addiction, spinal cord injury, stroke, and traumatic brain injury.
  3. Cosmetic and Personal Care applications include skin and hair regeneration, accelerated teeth straightening and stabilization, and treatment of sleep apnea and breathing disorders, breast augmentation, and erectile dysfunction.
  4. Major Organ Regeneration applications include muscle building and regeneration and treatments for bladder dysfunction, kidney failure, liver failure, lung recovery, covid recovery, vision and hearing recovery, and knee joint pain.
  5. Cancer Klotho has been shown in some pre-clinical studies to exhibit tumor suppression activity. Our portfolio startup CanceCell is developing Klotho stimulation and other bioelectric and biologic treatments for cancer and has received 10 issued U.S. patents already.

The company is developing KlothoYears, a program to provide access to Klotho testing and education on ways to increase Klotho, and to provide participants with a comparison of their level to normal values for their age, gender, and other demographics. The program is in early beta launch research phase in only selected regions at this time and with plans in place to fully launch nationwide in the USA some time in 2023 with a tested full logistics system in place.

In 2021 Leonhardt Ventures LLC announced it purchased an exclusive license to intellectual property for KLOTHO EXPRESSING MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS intended to be used in combination with its bioelectric IP for a wide range of longevity and wellness applications.  Our research team believes this combination represents the potential to be a potent therapy for patients most in need.
